Message from the Strategic Director - Place

Thank you for your interest in the role of Head of Economic Regeneration at North West Leicestershire District Council.

North West Leicestershire is a District which is ambitious for opportunities and prosperity for local people and with good reason to be confident that these aims will be realised.  An area which combines thriving towns with beautiful countryside in the heart of the national forest, North West Leicestershire is also a magnet for growing businesses who want to take advantage of its outstanding infrastructure in terms of its proximity to major road and rail networks and with the increasingly important East Midlands Airport.  The District sits within the Golden Triangle of M1/M42/M6 and includes the East Midlands Gateway and developing strategic rail freight interchange.

The new Head of Economic Regeneration will join us at an exciting time, working as part of a new management team to help take North West Leicestershire communities and stakeholders forward into a new era of growth and development and build on the great opportunities within the District.    

The Council already has a reputation for being well run and financially secure, providing a positive working environment for a dedicated and experienced economic regeneration professional.  The ability to work positively with local stakeholders and to lead teams in a way that matches the values of the organisation is essential.  The role is wide ranging and will work collaboratively as part of an integrated approach to place-making across the District including support for our market towns and delivery of the Coalville Project.  Responsibilities also include tourism, business support and delivery of cultural services.

If this sounds like the opportunity you’ve been waiting for, then I look forward to receiving your application.

James Arnold
Strategic Director - Place
